Sadly that involves $50 or so I don't have (it was my lucky day when I
found $1 under the recylcing containers this morning)... in the
situation your thinking of does the timeout just simplely lock the
drive up (actually not lock it but effectivally so).... for example:

mount /dev/acd0 /mnt

will complete freeze mount up (luckly not everything else some other
nameless OS) to the point that ^C, ^Z, kill (w/ and wo/ -9) do
absulutly nothing to get mount to exit
